1Final Project Management PlanBUS 633: Project & Operations ManagementJuly 25th, 2021Introduction
2In 2020, ILS purchased a logistics firm in New Zealand. This facility has a number of concerns that must be addressed immediately in order for it to meet the company's requirements. The purpose of this document is to lay out a project plan that shareholders and team members may use to understand what needs to be completed. The goal of the projects is to enhance warehouse and truck driver safety, decrease power waste, organize the warehouse, replace or repair old/damaged equipment, teach personnel to ILS standards, reduce attrition, and document procedures so that records of the work and training may be kept (Birkedal, 2020). The major objective of this initiative is to obtain business from firms like Walmart, of whom there are several in the vicinity of the logistics company that ILS purchased.Deliverables List for The ProjectCreate a team of sponsors:ILS will hire trainers to help staff improve their skills in the company's various departments. ILS is going to have six weeks of refresher driving school for existing truck drivers and twelve weeks for new drivers as part of the safety training. To be qualified drivers/operators, all personnel who use heavy equipment will have to train for a week and be required to pass a certification exam. Reduce power bill:ILS will install new automated motion sensors as part of this project, which will switch off lights after business hours. Managers will be able to program the lighting to turn on and off using this new technology. The motion sensor will activate and shut off automatically if individuals are working after hours. The automation of light switches will lower expenses while increasing profits.
3Organize the Warehouse:ILS is widely known for its well-organized warehouses, which help the firm to be profitable on a global scale. Disorganization is one of the primary difficulties at thenewly purchased warehouse. To maximize efficiency while storing items and enhance production, we will label the whole warehouse and color match it. We'll also divide the inbound and outgoing sections to decrease the risk of error or misunderstanding.Repair or replace old equipment:We will repair or replace any old or non-functional equipment that we are unable to repair. To promote local companies and shops, the repairs that need to be made will be performed by a local that go to the warehouse and fix on-site. We'll talk to local suppliers about getting new equipment to replace the ones we can't maintain. Supporting local businesses fosters relationships, which are crucial while working in a foreign country.
